Librivox recording of The Art of War by Sun Tzu, translated by Lionel Giles.

Read by Moira Fogarty.

"The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. The Art of War is one of the oldest and most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on both military planning and beyond. The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies." (summary from Wikipedia)

Subject: Nice Sound !!
Hi, I would like to have the history in PDF file or other format, I want to follow the sound with the text, there are many words that I can't understand yet. Who help me?

Subject: Finally found it.
I have been searching for this book in printed format for quite some time here in Pakistan, but unfortunately it is not available.

However, I was delighted to find this in Audio Book format.

Many thanks!!!

Subject: Excellent Narration and High Quality Recording!!!
Thank you, Moira Fogarty, for narrating this for us. You are certainly in the top echelon of readers on Librivox in my opinion. I'm now going to visit some of the other novels you've read. Keep up the great work. The quality of the recording was outstanding as well.

What could be hotter than a chick reading about war stratagems? Some popping into the mic, but good pacing and powerful content.
